as far as you saying there are political ways to clean up the police, that also is untrue. the police have an image to protect. if that image is damaged, then they're going to do things to spin the damage control. throw a few police officers under the bus or whatever to show that they're doing something about it even though nothing has changed. there's good cops and there's bad cops. if you give certain people power over a good size population where they have control over them, there will be an abuse of that power. it's impossible to ensure that a police force WON'T have someone that isn't fucked up. it's bound to happen especially when you have some folks that become police officer because they're power hungry or want to feel special because they have a badge on their shirt.
